Mr and Mrs Geiss

Sara and Brian were married on a beautiful July day, which just so happened to be seven years to the day when they began dating.  Their wedding was held at Strawberry Farms Golf Course in Irvine.   I’ve been dying to shoot at the location and it didn’t disappoint.  I love the rustic feel of the venue.  And the red barn is AMAZING!

Sara and Brian had a bird theme to their wedding and I loved how all of the details tied together.  So cute!

The Gill Family

Jill (yes, her name is Jill Gill) and Brandon are expecting baby number two very soon! So, we did one last shoot to document them as a family of three before their little boy arrives! I’ve shot Jill and Brandon’s engagement pictures, was a guest at their wedding, did their first maternity pictures, Cami’s newborn pictures, Cami’s one year pictures, and now maternity/family session #2! Whew!

Cameron just turned two and she is such a ball of energy! She’s adventurous and funny and I love how when she hugs she hugs with all of her little mite. She loves candy and has to have two pieces each time you give her some. Her favorite tv show is Dora and she says, “Oh, man!”. She’s going to be a great big sister!

I can’t wait to meet their little man in a little less than 7 weeks. If you ask Jill she’ll say he’s coming closer to a month! We’ll see! Here’s the slideshow!

Baby Reid

I was closely monitoring Ashley’s progress on Facebook because I was so nervous that Baby Reid was going to be born too early and I wouldn’t be able to shoot his newborn pictures because I was on vacation.  He did end up being born three weeks early, but he stayed in long enough that I was able to shoot his first professional pictures the day after I got back from Hawaii.

Baby Reid is perfect!  But, what else would I expect from Ashley and Tyson?  Reid slept practically the entire time.  He let us put him on top of shelves and even outside in a basinet.  And Ashley is a labor and delivery nurse so having her there to pose Reid was so helpful.  Do you think she would quit her job and come be my assistant?  Wishful thinking!  If only all newborn sessions could be as easy as this one!

I know I’ve said it before, but it is the biggest compliment when my past brides and grooms trust me with the next important stage in their life.  It was so special to capture Ashley and Tyson with their baby boy.  They are already such amazing parents.  I can’t wait to see the little person Reid grows up to be.  He is already so, so, so loved by so many people!  Here’s the slideshow!
